“You Get a LOT for your Money here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

Coming to Ashland for the Shakespeare Festival is an annual event. I hesitate to write this review as I don't want our favorite hotel to get too popular! When you drive into the property, you see Tudor-like buildings. We stayed in a 2 queen bed room with two sinks - ladies who travel together know how important this is! Lots of comfy pillows in the newly updated rooms. Mini-refrigerator is in the TV cabinet.In the morning, the continental breakfast is more than just pastries and juice. Great swimming pool and spa plus a good exercise room. The grounds are filled with flowers, and it is so very beautiful! The only downside for some, is you must drive less than 10 minutes into Ashland to see the plays. But, the hotel does offer a shuttle, so that problem is solved. A lovely property!

This hotel is a real find. It isn't within walking distance of the Shakespeare Festival or downtown Ashland, but if you have a car, this is an acceptable place to stay. They do have a complimentary shuttle to the festival when the plays are on so that is a plus. We had originally booked two nights and a few days before leaving on our trip, decided to stay an additional night. I called the hotel but they were booked so I had to book our third night at another hotel that the Best Western recommended that was nearby. When we checked in, I mentioned again that we would like to stay an additional night. The clerk was very helpful and said she'd be able to accomodate us, but we might have to move rooms for the third night. We were going to move hotels for the third night, so moving rooms was a plus. We hadn't been in our room an hour when we received a call from the front desk to tell us that they figured it out and we could stay in the same room all three nights! The daily breakfast was awesome. Scrambled eggs, pancakes, sausage, bagels, toast, muffins, cereal. We never started the day off hungry. Our tub was slow to drain so we notified the front desk when we left for the day. When we returned later in the day, there was a hand written note on our bed from one of the staff saying they snaked the tub, but that they needed a bigger snake and would return to try to fix it. A few hours later a mantenance person showed up with a bottle of drano and was generous in using the drano and the drain worked much better afterwards. They said they could do more to fix it, but didn't want to intrude on us while we were in the room, or start a project that could take several hours. They were trying to get the problem fixed to our satisfaction and then come in once our stay had ended to fix the problem properly. Everyone was friendly, helpful, cheerful, pleasant, and made our stay enjoyable.

We stayed in this hotel for two nights during a family roadtrip to Southern Oregon. The rooms are nicely decorated and spacious with comfortable beds. The grounds are beautiful and the pool was great for hot summer evening swim. We also used the exercise room which is spacious and well equipped. The breakfast is generous and self serve. The shuttle to the Shakepeare Festival was very convenient and allowed us not to have to worry about parking downtown. The hotel is a great value. Although we don't usually stay in motels this one is an exception and we will stay again.

We were looking for a place for our family of 4 that was reasonably priced that was also nice and clean.
This is a great place for a family. It has a very clean pool and hot tub. The employees were all friendly and helpful. The thing I really liked is that it had two sinks both outside the toilet/shower area so some people can be getting ready while others are showering, which saves time with a group of 4. The grounds are well kept with beautiful flowers. The breakfast was just okay as most inclusive breakfasts are, but they have an outside eating area which we enjoyed in the nice weather. The only reason we didn't give it a 5 is that you have to drive to downtown Ashland and their shuttle only runs on weekends. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed on our travels to the Shakespeare Festival . Room was good-sized, very clean, and comfortable beds. Amanda (with her name-tag upside down- :P) the GM was checking guests in. Very friendly service.

After reading all the positive reviews here, and my generally good experience with Best Westerns, I booked this for a 4-night Ashland getaway.

First impressions were good. Despite a rather urban location (gas stations and freeway), the lovely landscaping (lots of wonderful flowers! and even some trees!) and Tudor revival architecture were charming. The check-in was flawless.

The room is spacious and has the right furnishings - usable desk, table and chairs. The in-room jacuzzi worked great. The room has a convenient little fridge. Importantly, the wi-fi is free and functioning.

So what's not so good?

The main problem: The in-room fire alarm started squawking at intervals late on our 3rd night. I told the front desk, but it was too late to *do* anything about it. He said he'd ask Maintenance to take a look in the morning. Meanwhile, I found that if the air-conditioner was switched off, the squawks stopped. The choice was sleeping with loud occasional squawks or sleeping without the aircon, so no aircon.

It's midnight of the 4th night now, and it's squawking *again*. It doesn't seem that anything was done about it. Here goes another night without the aircon.

Other than that: The bathroom area is cramped, and there's no closet. The drawers under the old CRT-type TV don't operate properly if the TV shutters are open. The bed is softer than I'd like. Some of the power outlets have loose contacts, so things plugged into them have to be jiggled around, and there aren't enough open power outlets.

I asked the front desk for a late check-out. They said I'd have to call back tomorrow and ask.

On the whole: Reasonably good value for money, and I'd probably stay here again.The positives outweigh the negatives. But I think they could be a bit more user-friendly, and that the room could be planned a bit better - better drawers, maybe a closet or armoire, an upgraded TV. A power strip on the desk for charging cellphones/ laptops etc would be nice to have.

It was a pity to be there on a business trip, without having time to enjoy gym, pool and other amenities available. I tried gym, treadmill was not fantastic but acceptable, other equipments were good. Room was spacious and very clean, maybe they could work to light it a bitt better.
We had check out at 2PM, just upon request, that's fine. Breakfast was good and also possible to have it inside or outside. Good choice of hot plates.
